Dead Cells Legacy Update brings tons of content to the hit roguelike, now available on Android

Dead Cells Legacy Update brings tons of content to the hit roguelike, now available on Android

Dead Cells is an extremely popular roguelike that was ported to Android back in June (2020), though the mobile version is on a different upgrade path compared to the console or PC versions. This is why the Legacy Update landed on PC back in 2019 and is only now arriving on mobile. Luckily it would appear the wait was worth it since today's update brings with it a plethora of new features and content to the Android version that's all available for free if you already own the game.

Doom and Doom II are now playable at up to 120 FPS on Android

Doom and Doom II are now playable at up to 120 FPS on Android

Bethesda released Doom And Doom II on Android back in July of 2019, but both games had a rocky start thanks to a forced log-in, music changes, and a lack of features. Unlike most AAA devs on the Play Store, Bethesda actually put in the work to improve each game, and today another large update has been pushed out to both titles. You can now view either game in 16:9, and high frame rates have also made the cut, which means you can now play at 90 FPS and 120 FPS. Support for DeHackEd-based add-ons is also in the mix, and a few performance improvements are here to seal the deal.

Tetris gets three new modes, including a daily tournament with cash prizes

This past January, N3TWORK Inc. released a new version of Tetris for mobile, and it was well-received, thanks to competent monetization, smooth controls, and a few welcome skins. Well, as of today, Tetris has received a monumental update. First and foremost, there's a new competitive tournament mode called Tetris Primetime, which works a lot like HQ Trivia, in that you can actually win money by playing in this nightly live tournament. But that's not all, because two more modes are included in today's update, Tetris Together (a family mode) and Tetris Royale (a battle royale mode similar to Tetris 99).

PUBG Mobile 0.19.0 includes a new Nordic-style map, a monster truck, two new firearms, and more

Typically new PUBG expansions drop near the beginning of the month, and so patch 0.19.0 is officially available starting today. What's unique about this release is that it marks the first time the game has been updated without taking the servers offline in order to ensure a better gaming experience for players, which is nice to see. Beyond the new method to push updates, players can expect to find an all-new Nordic-style map Livik, a map-exclusive vehicle, and two new map-exclusive firearms. It's also clear that PUBG Corporation is continuing the prep work for the launch of season 14 on July 14th.

Doom and Doom II updated with better touch controls, adjustable FPS limits, expanded controller support, and more

Doom and Doom II updated with better touch controls, adjustable FPS limits, expanded controller support, and more

Bethesda recently updated the Android versions of Doom and Doom II to bring a bunch of new features to the titles, such as tweaked touch controls, support for adjustable frame rate limits, not to mention physical controller support along with mouse and keyboard support. Heck, Bethesda even added a toggle for Vsync (a rarity for a mobile game), for those of you that would like to reduce either title's input latency. So no matter how you slice it, it would appear that Bethesda has actually improved both games, though it could be argued that all of these features should have been available in both titles from the jump.

Plague Inc is getting a mode that lets you save the world from a virus instead of spreading it

Plague Inc is getting a mode that lets you save the world from a virus instead of spreading it

Ndemic Creations has been in the news a bunch lately, all because the developer made a game about a virus outbreak eight years ago. Back in February, Plague Inc was banned by the Cyberspace Administration of China during the coronavirus outbreak in the country. While the administration never confirmed a reason for banning the game, it was pretty clear the country's government wasn't a fan of a game where infecting the world with a virus is the goal. Well, as an answer to these strange events, Ndemic Creations has announced that a new mode is in the works for Plague Inc, and this time around, you'll be able to save the world from a virus instead of being tasked to infect it.
